Great movie

The movie below is a good one for learning English. The dialogue is slow and clear, with pauses. There is no violence or bad language. I discovered it on Youtube, so it may not remain there forever. It was made in 2006 and is called Tomorrow is Today.

TED talks

I like TED talks a lot. You can listen to one below. They are short: 10 minutes or 20. They are about many kinds of topic. You can turn on their captions and read along. and you can even sometimes translate them into Japanese. This talk is excellent for pronunciation, especially for intonation, rhythm, stress and so forth.
